Saturday at CenturyLink Field, as Seattle host Kansas in the MLS.

Seattle, currently sitting seventh, host fourteenth placed Kansas on Saturday.

Seattle Sounders’ campaign so far has seen them accrue 20 points this season

With the memory of their last match, doubtless on their minds, a (1-1) draw against Los Angeles FC, Seattle will be keen to improve on that result in this game.

Also, Seattle keep finding ways to win, having secured four victories in their last seven matches is astonishing this season. With a seventh position in the league and 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws, they currently have 20 points in the League.

Seattle have won four fixtures, drawn one game, and lost two fixtures of their seven League matches at home this season.

Seattle Sounders will have 23 points if they manage to secure a victory.

It’s 13 points so far for Sporting Kansas City this season, going into this match

Whilst Kansas need a positive result from this fixture, they cannot afford to throw caution to the wind. Another successive defeat for Wizards after losing against New England Revolution and Vancouver Whitecaps would represent a worrying sign of where they are just now.

Also, Kansas need to find a way to generate wins on a consistent basis, as they’ve recorded nine losses in their last 16 matches. Their position is fourteenth in the League and they have 13 points, that is, 0W, 0L and 0D.

It must be a worrying prospect for Kansas to go back on the road, with a bud run of away performances under their belt this season. So far they have only secured two draws and six defeats to the home team.

A win in this fixture, would take Sporting Kansas City’s points from 13 to 16, so far this season.
